Grilled chicken breast fillets


Healthy, simple and flavorful, this recipe proves the chicken is a very versatile ingredient.


2 chicken (chicken breasts)
12 clv garlic
  salt (to taste)
1⁄2 t paprika
1 t pepper (peppercorns)


  1. Place the chicken pieces in between plastic wraps. Flatten them evenly using a rolling pin or mallet. Score either sides of the chicken pieces, with a knife. You can omit this step as this is optional.
  2. Grind rest of the ingredients together to form a fine paste. Apply this paste all over the pieces. Cover and keep aside at least for 30 minutes.
  3. Grill the chicken till the juices run clear and the chicken is no longer pink. It should take roughly 10 minutes on either side. The time taken may vary according to the thickness of the chicken and the cooking temperature.
